What should we name the death of family members or close friends?
These are not mere departures like a vacation or extended trip; as we know we will see them again.
These are heartbreaking and gut wrenching, with all loss of contact. They are no longer in our life. The name to best describe it is A Leaving.
When she died, the quiet of it all
As machines went silent
Taking a last loving look
While weeping bitter tears
Contemplating the beauty of her life well lived
Always to remain in memory
Missing and grieving her for countless years
Yet, finding no comfort.
